Hey ya'll. New to Dakka here.

Have been trolling the forums for about a month now and really like the painting i see going on here. Some really great stuff happening, learned alot. This is my first army and I wanted to share my journey here with you.


I realize that there are ALOT of ork players and painter on this forum, but I wanted to post anyway and get some opinions, fairly new to modeling so my basing isn't the best.

Comments and criticism welcomed!

Looks great. Just one little nitpick, Drill out the barrels. I'm guilty of taking pics before I drill because I get so excited a mini is done. Snikrot is ace and good pics.

Thanks for the comments all. I finished snikrot, he looks real good, may be a couple days before i can get a picture up of him.

As per the comment from Watsabi I just haven't purchased a hand drill yet, though they are just 4 dollars from Michaels, would be a worthy investment. IM just not looking forward to the carpel tunel I will surely get from drilling out over a hundred barrells haha.

Also LunaHound I don't use citidel paints, I figure that GW gets more than enough money from me with the minitures and all.

I use craft store paints. The brand is called Folkart, i use the artist pigment, it has a higher pigment count like the citadel paints due but its about the 3rd of the cost and works the same.

I like the sinkrot, nice gem effects on the mask. The only thing that bothers me is it looks like the blades on his choppas are rusty, like they havent been sharpened. The edges of those things oughta gleam malevolently in the moonlight.

The pictures are dark, the blades are actually quite orange and not rusty at all, they gleam quite nicely =)

Snikrot looks great- actually everything is awesome!

What did you use to coat/ protect Snikrot? It looks like he has a shine to him. I use 'Ard Coat from GW to protect my models, but I only paint it onto spaces that I want to shine; sweaty body parts and shiny vehicle pieces. Then I spray dull protective coating on from a spray can.

Can we see an entire army photo? Your HQ units look great so far!

I use the Army Painter strong tone on my models, then i spray them with rustoleum matt coat to take away the shine.

Thanks for the comments though.

I will try to get an entire army shot up.

Really digging the scheme, like the brown and reds and the checkered helmets

ohh and good use of tonka, just jack up the wheels with some spikes or something, they dont look orky enough in my opinion.

ohh and snikrot is simply amazing

I look forward to your battle wagon with that color scheme.

Yeah so now that the lib's done, he's been kicking ass First he suck up Kor'sarro khan soul and then helped kill Eldrad. Also why did you want so many rocks on that board, it was like fighting in the Grand Canyon. I managed to pull off a draw after you left Yesterday.
